It had never been easy each year for me to make these mixtapes, and being consistent is even harder.
This 2011 Christmas Mixtape marks the 5th time I’m doing this annually (click here for the rest: 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010). Since then the mixtapes had been aired on radios, made as Christmas gift merchandises, and featured on magazines. It had also spawned year-end mixtapes from my friends. And request had been more demanding towards the end of the year -_-; Nevertheless, I used the process for my own personal reflection, refreshing and expression – it is not as much the destination as it is the journey itself.
See you next year!

*As usual, the songs that are included in this mix-tape doesn’t have any permission to be distributed and sold at all, and I didn’t had the chance to ask for one. And so, I’m sincerely apologizing my rudeness to my friends which songs are included here. But be rest assured, I bought every single releases which song belonged to, including the ones I got from advance/sample copies. And I’m urging everyone who liked the songs to buy the original releases.
